Lutheran Life Communities is grateful for its strong history of community support. We were founded i...n 1892 by faithful congregations that wanted to meet the needs of their aging members. From one generation to the next, donors and friends have come forward to support this ministry of service. The same is certainly true today. The Lutheran Life Communities Foundation was established to receive gifts for all of our campuses.
Last year, the Lutheran Life Communities Foundation was able to raise over five million dollars thanks to the many generous friends who made the choice to be a part of this ministry. Generous contributions helped to fund campus reconstruction and renovation, provided spiritual care, supported staff development and enabled us to care for residents who have outlived their financial resources
